Note: Frank L. Enns (1919-2006) Four short days after his wife Josie�s death, Frank L. Enns passed away at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg as a result of injuries sustained in the same automobile accident. He is deeply missed by his children, son Orville and Anna of Burwalde and their daughters Nicole, Keri and Colleen; son Wesley of Burwalde; daughter Celia and Bernie Baergen of Winnipeg, and their daughters Allison and Amy; and daughter Linda and Gordon Janzen of Winnipeg along with their daughters Christina, Sarah and Maya. He will also be missed by his brother Marvin and Anne of Winkler, sister Marion and Hartman Vincent of Winnipeg, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends. Frank was predeceased by his beloved wife Josie Enns (nee Dyck), his parents Frank M. and Maria (Loewen) Enns, sisters Margie Brandt, Eva Loewen and Ruth Schroeder, as well as four brothers-in-law and two sisters-in-law. Frank was born in the Greenfarm area and moved to Burwalde as a young boy. He attended the Burwalde School for eight years and also studied at Elim Bible School in Gretna. One childhood highlight was memorizing enough Bible verses to attend a Canadian Sunday School Mission camp. Frank was baptized in the Morden Bergthaler Church in 1939. As a conscientious objector, he helped build roads in the Clear Lake area. On December 8, 1946, he married Josephine Dyck in the Winkler Mennonite Brethren Church. They celebrated 59 years, 5 months and 5 days together. Frank and Josie joined Grace Mennonite Church in May, 1964. Frank worked with his parents on the farm before purchasing his own farmstead in Burwalde in the mid 1940s. He especially enjoyed working with horses and kept horses around for many years. Dad�s community involvement included serving as a Burwalde school trustee secretary and also serving 28 years on the board of directors of Winkler Consumers Co-op. He took pride in his involvement and what the Co-op meant to the community. Frank loved to read, consult the Wiens genealogy book, return to the farm to see how Wes was doing and how the crops were coming along, and play crokinole or Rummikub. He always looked forward to visits from family and greeted us with a warm smile, an outstretched hand and an offer of pop. He had a delightful sense of humour: one of his favorite pins said, "I�m not Hard of Hearing; I�m just ignoring U." In later years, his hearing loss restricted his ability to socialize-something he dearly loved to do. Dad kept informed about many issues through reading and had a wide variety of interests. He spoke fondly of taking their fifth-wheeler to Alaska, seeing the ancient city of Petra in Jordan and the beauty of Kentucky in the spring. Funeral service for Frank and Josie was held on Friday, May 19, 2006 at 2:00 pm at Grace Mennonite Church with Pastor Herb Franz and Rev. Bernie Loeppky officiating. Interment followed at Winkler Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to either of the following charities: MCC Box 1774 Winkler, MB R6W 4B6, Back to the Bible Broadcast Box 10 Winnipeg, MB R3C 2G2, Wycliffe Bible Translators 4316 10th St. NE Calgary, AB T2E 6K3. "The children of Frank and Josie would like to express deep appreciation and gratitude for the prayers and many acts of kindness shown to us by our friends, family and church communities in these past days. We thank the staff at Health Sciences and Boundary Trails Health Centre for their compassion extended to Dad and to the whole family, as well as Wiebe Funeral Homes for their support during this difficult time."
